Here is the situation: I am 42 year old female. I own a gardening business that requires ALOT of heavy labor on my back. In April of 2007 the pain all began. It feels like I have pole right thru my middle back to my sternum. I have had 3 MRI on the thoracic with nothing of significant to report. A cervical MRI showed osteo arthritis. I underwent diagnostic injections in my cervical and had Radiofrequency on both sides (the right 2 times) - but no pain relief...they performed the same onmy T345 - again no true pain relief. It hurts so bad to lean forward, to sit, to drive. The only real relief is to be lying flat on my back. The pain management physician has said it sounds ridicular type of pain, but there is nothing to denote on the mri. I have tingling in my left should blade that somes and goes, but nothing down the arm (since the radio frequency on my cervical). any input would be helpful.
